Backup File Name Prefix

Asked by Kip Warner on 2010-10-31

Is there any way to substitute the "duplicity-" file name prefix for something else? Even though my backups may be encrypted, I'd prefer to not advertise the fact that they contain my personal backups in the first place.

Not at the moment. If you really want it, you can patch the source and add a parameter switch.

Good idea. If I manage to get the time, I'll try to do this.

Hey Nguyen. I haven't had a chance to test your patch, but thank you anyways for your work.
